Need it, Love it, Want it, I'm GETTING it! (part 3)

This pink is killer!

Love. Love. LOVE.

Need it, Love it, Want it, I'm GETTING it! (part 2)

Sometimes blue feels golden...

This is the blue version of the Silence & Noise Ponte Cutout Back Dress and is probably exactly how I will wear it once I pick it up :)

Need it, Love it, Want it, I'm GETTING it!

This set features the Silence & Noise Ponte Cutout Back Dress from Urban Outfitters.

Where should I wear this outfit? Haha, more like where shouldn't I wear it.

I don't have any of these items....YET. But my birthday is right around the corner, so I just might be getting myself a few (small) presents. Anyway, I saw the dress online last night and was promptly converted into a raving, salivating, die-hard fan. I'm a complete and total softie for a unique (If those back cutouts don't classify it as unique, I don't know what does!), nicely cut Ponte Knit dress. The construction of the ponte fabric is often thicker and more polished, which makes it very complementary for girls with curves (definitely me)...less clingy on the hips than a jersey fabric, more support in the bust, and it better holds the shape of the garment, etc. And the best part? The dress comes in at least 2 other colors (blue and hot pink)!!! Yippeeeee!

Are there any fabrics/shapes/styles you're crazy about, can't live without, couldn't make it through life without?

I can also see myself wearing it with the dreaded Atomic Flower Necklace (dun dun dun....)

Dare me?

from Rack to Real life (Express Zebra Print Dress)


(she's rockin it, I know!)

Real Life

It's wild, for sure! Something about it makes me feel rebellious, but not too crazy. The photo's a little blurry, but I'm sure you catch my drift....

How in the world do you make it wearable, though? I mean, who walks around in a strapless zebra print dress on a day to day basis (hehehe, me, I suppose?)

Let's say I wanted to be demure....

Do these work?

Let's say I wanted to be professional (slightly)...

Maybe on a workplace casual friday?

And finally.....

Let's say I'm meeting a friend for lunch...

Do I dare?
Would you?

Bottom line, if you see a tall girl parading around town in a strapless Zebra print dress and killer black heels at noon on a Tuesday, chances are she's me (but I'll have my jacket/cardigan/blazer of choice draped over my arm just in case) !
